They say it's a waste

A waste of water

Don't let it run through the cracks
                           Em
But you roll it like a wave
   Bm
A wall of water
  A                    Em
Slides right off your back

I've given up on you    e --0--0--2--4h5p4--  these "extra" parts are
Em Em  C  C  E                                difficult to include with
Given up on you   e --0--0--2--0h2p0--        only one guitar

The river I run

Point my face to the water

My feet to the sun

They say you have your ways
Your ways about you
Beautiful lips tell lies
I'm going through a phase
Like a moon without you
Howling to cold black skies

About the artist behind Feet To The Sun:

Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement that began in neutral Zürich, Switzerland, during World War I and peaked from 1916 to 1920. The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature (poetry, art manifestoes, art theory), theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti war politic through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. Dada activities included public gatherings, demonstrations, and publication of art/literary journals. Passionate coverage of art, politics, and culture filled their publications. The movement influenced later styles, Avant-garde and Downtown music movements, and groups including Surrealism, Nouveau Réalisme, Pop Art and Fluxus.



Dada is the groundwork to abstract art and sound poetry, a starting point for performance art, a prelude to postmodernism, an influence on pop art, a celebration of antiart to be later embraced for anarcho-political uses in the 1960s and the movement that lay the foundation for Surrealism. Marc Lowenthal, Translator's introduction to Francis Picabia's I Am a Beautiful Monster: Poetry, Prose, And Provocation (MIT Press 2007)
